A lot of us old hands from both the Conservative and Labour parties had come to the conclusion that our parties were engaged in a massive struggle to out-lose each other.

We measure out the turn of the year with familiar rituals: All Hallows, Bonfire Night, Remembrance Sunday. Plus, of course, my annual blog about how autumn is the finest season, nowhere finer than on this island.

In February 2014, while promoting his World War Two film, The Monuments Men, Hollywood A-List actor George Clooney declared that Britain should send the Elgin Marbles back to Greece.

How peaceful the Spava seems now, the autumn colours reflected in its stately flow. In May, the river savagely burst its banks, devastating parts of Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia, displacing thousands of people.
